Political Gup-Shup: Of Pranab's diplomacy & Gadkari's weight loss 22.10.2017
It is well known that former President Pranab Mukherjee has a fine political mind and an amazing memory. Mr Mukherjee can reel off facts and figures about past political developments, even going into details like the seating arrangement at a meeting. When someone recently remarked that Mr Mukherjee had the memory of an elephant, Congress president Sonia Gandhi quipped: "Two elephants." Given Mr Mukherjee"s reputation, people were baffled that the former President"s latest book The Coalition Years: 1996 to 2012 had quoted from another book while referring to the proceedings of a meeting of the Congress Working Committee at which he was present. Instead of giving his own account, Mr Mukherjee has quoted from journalist Rasheed Kidwai"s book, Sonia: A Biography about the meeting at which P.A. Sangma, Sharad Pawar and Tariq Anwar raised the issue of Mrs Gandhi"s foreign origins which eventually led to their departure from the Congress. Congress insiders maintain that Mr ...

Kuldip Bhatia Ludhiana, October 21 In a typical case of not practicing what one preaches, the Municipal Corporation (MC) has itself encroached upon part of a road in the posh Model Town locality for construction of Urban Primary Health Centre (UPHC) under the National Health Mission.
